Closing the Gates to Hell: A Global Plan to Phase Out Fossil Fuels and Accelerate a Just Transition

Oil, gas and coal are driving the climate crisis yet have, incredibly, largely been ignored in climate talks and policies. That’s starting to change. Millions of people are coalescing around the call for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty to end the expansion of fossil fuels, phase out existing production, and accelerate a just transition to clean energy and low carbon solutions. Join a panel of civil society, government and Indigenous leaders in a conversation about the growing momentum for a Fossil Fuel Treaty and how this global initiative is shaping the climate conversation, removing industry’s social license and compelling decision-makers to finally take action to end the era of fossil fuels—fast, fair and forever. Hosted by Cara Pike, Senior Communication Advisor to the Fossil Fuel Treaty, founder/Executive Director, Climate Access. With: Osprey Orielle Lake, founder/Executive Director, Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network; Eriel Deranger, Founder and Executive Director, Indigenous Climate Action; Michael Brune, Climate and Campaign Strategist; Eduardo Martinez, the Mayor of Richmond; and Bryony Worthington of Worthington and Associates.
